TriviaThe US and European versions cut out several of the sport-related mini-games as well as the "Nekketsu Seishun Nikki" mode, which is a sort of rpg-lite mode in which you created a custom character, select specific schools and clubs for him to join and then set off in a campaign mode which involves dealing with the other characters, fighting with them and generally living in the Rival Schools universe. The reward being increased stats for your custom character that can be later used in the main game and its removal is quite odd considering it was the main reason for the "Evolution" disk to exist in the first place.
